FUEL IT

FUEL IT is a fun six-week physical activity and nutrition challenge for individuals from Monday, June 16th - Sunday, July 27th.

While being active, it's important to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs from fresh fruits and vegetables...and, it's even easier to do this during the summer!  Earn points by logging your activity and tracking the number of daily servings of fruits and vegetables you consume.  The goal each day is to log an average of 8,000 steps or more and to consume 5 servings or more of fruits and vegetables.  Fun prizes will be awarded throughout the challenge! 

Although this is an individual challenge, we encourage participants to work together with colleagues, family members and friends to reach their challenge goals. 

To join the FUEL IT challenge, log in (or register) here and then follow the directions to join FUEL IT.  The challenge begins on Monday, June 16th.

Tips:

The goal each day is to eat 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables.  See the below picture for a nice visual of 5 servings!  To learn more about how much 1 serving is – check out the quick FUEL IT Minute video here.

 5 servings 5 servings of fruits & vegetables =

 - 1 pear

 - 1 cup grapes (~half of a sandwich sized bag)

 - 2 cups cut vegetables (~3/4 of a sandwich sized bag)

 - 1 small can of low-sodium V8 juice
